Welcome to University College Birmingham

Welcome information for new college students enrolling in September 2022

The information below will help you prepare for enrolment and the start of your course.

Step 1 – Complete your online registration

If you have been offered a place at University College Birmingham, you will be sent an email and text message from our Admissions team to complete your online registration. It is very important that you complete your online registration, as this is the first part of your enrolment. 

If you have studied with us before, you may already be able to log in to the UCB Portal; otherwise, you will need to set up your student account. The email you receive will provide you with your own unique link to do this if needed, and the text message will contain your UCB Student ID, which you will need to register. 

Uploading documents

Once you have completed your online registration, you have created your student dashboard. Now you need to log out and log back in, in order to upload your documents. Make sure you upload ALL documents that are relevant to you, including: 

  • your chosen photo for ID (no Snapchat filters, please, let’s keep it professional!)  
  • your proof of ID – see below for the list of acceptable identity documents 
  • any residence evidence – e.g. your passport/residence documents, if relevant  
  • any evidence of your name change, if your name is now different from the name on the documentation you provide to us, e.g. deed poll document or marriage certificate. All our systems will use the name on your official documentation.

Doing this now will save you a lot of time later!  

Important - If you have not received your email or text message, call our Admissions team on 0121 214 2919 or complete our enquiry form here and we will help you to activate your account and complete your online registration. 

Please make a note of your student ID and your password. If you forget your password, you will need to email itsu@ucb.ac.uk stating;  

  • Your full name  
  • Your UCB student ID number 
  • Your address 
  • Your chosen course

Once you’ve registered, wait for your results to complete the second stage of your enrolment. If you need to update your contact details at any time, you can do so by accessing your student portal here. 

Step 2 - Upload your results

When you receive your results on Thursday, please log back onto your student dashboard and upload your results. You will need your student ID and password created in Step 1.

Once you have logged in, please navigate to the enrolment section of your dashboard and select ‘documents’ tab and then click ‘add file’. As soon as your image has been uploaded, it will automatically be saved. You can view a video tutorial of these steps here.

A few things to note: 

  • Do not email us your results. If you are having trouble uploading your results, don’t worry, our Admissions team will help you with this process.
  • Even if you haven’t achieved the results you were hoping for, please still upload them so we can see if there is another course in our portfolio that we can offer you.  

Once we have checked your results, we will call you to confirm your place on the course or offer you an alternative if you haven’t met the conditions of the offer.  


Once we’ve spoken to you and checked that you are not required to pay fees (or confirmed your loan is in place, if you need a loan), you will officially be enrolled. All that’s left for you to do after this point is to collect your ID card.

You can do this in Camden House between 24th August 2022 and 9th September 2022. If we require further information, we will contact you either by phone or email and discuss this with you. You may be asked to provide further evidence before your enrolment is considered complete.
